I can't recommend any more highly any cooking class that one might happen upon, with Cathy in the lead. Besides being a lovely presence in the kitchen, her instructions really inspire confidence, as well as the wonder and joy of creating a beautiful meal.
One of the biggest issues in my home is that I am a 30+ year old and my mother and I live together. She has gained a little weight (not much, but enough to effect her back) and I am just not eating right. One of the SIMPLE things that I have taken away from this book is have a sit down meal every day. My mother and I have actually grown closer because of this very easy practice. Taking time to sit, talk, express how good the food is, come up with new ideas for cooking. I have been in the kitchen working on making dinner special, choosing this as one thing I will do for her, since she has done so much for me. Connecting emotion with food is a tricky thing, but this is such a positive that I look forward to getting into the kitchen and preparing a dish that my mother, friends and other family members will remember and enjoy. I set out my nice plates, napkins and chargers. I make dinner an affair, not a break in your work, t.v. or computer time, but instead an experience.
The recipes in this book are AMAZING. Things may seem simple, but when the right ingredients come together it is really something magical. The curried chick pea and veggie stew is FANTASTIC. I also must say, for life I have been a true salad hater. But not any from this book. I LOVE salad now, and the crunchy veggie and apple slaw is to die for.
So stay healthy my friends, and I hope that after reading these reviews and peeking into her book you nab one up and learn to truly enjoy cooking again. It is so, so, so worth it. It is not just an investment in some new ideas for meals, but an investment into how you take care of your body and soul. Happy cooking!
